Yin

Injury prevention, joint health, and restorative energy.

The essence of Yin Yoga is surrender. To balance the heat-building, blood-pumping, strengthening "yang" side of a Vinyasa Flow or Ashtanga practice, Yin focuses on postures that lengthen the muscles surrounding the hips, pelvis, and lower back. Students typically hold these postures for 3-10 minutes per side in order to lengthen the connective tissue that surrounds the joints and increase its elasticity. The elasticity of our connective tissue diminishes with physical activity and aging, which makes Yin essential for injury prevention and joint health. Since a Yin Yoga practice often includes several long, seated forward bending postures, it also restores energy and calms the nervous system. Pure bliss!

Take a brief break to stop stress in its tracks. This practice uses Chinese Medicine theory to counteract stress by nourishing the water element and kidneys. You'll practice long holds in poses that target specific meridians, in order to ease stress and tension. Specific breathing techniques will be used to magnify the calming effects. A great practice anytime you need to relax, recharge and shake off whatever is weighing you down. Props Needed: A block and a blanket or towel.
Take your foot off the gas for a few minutes and move into the relaxed lane. Begin standing to meet the more active element of your energy, then wind down into supported postures like butterfly, pigeon and side stretches. You can do this practice at the end of the day, or right before a stressful event, as this sequence can help you slow down, breathe and think and feel at ease. Props Needed: Two blocks, a bolster and a blanket.
Practice the cooling breath technique known as sitali or sitakri in Sanskrit. This slow, languid practice incorporates the principles of Ayurveda with three variations of the cooling breath along with a supine series to dispel heat in the intense months of summer. Focus on your hips, low back and pelvis with soothing twists and half happy baby. No props are required, but have a blanket if you would like extra support on your mat. Props Suggested: A blanket.
Shake out one part of your day so you can move on to the next! Encourage space and ease with several supported twists, hip openers and poses that lengthen and relax. Notice how your breath and body transform as you slowly let go into half happy baby, supported gomukhasana and supported baddha konasana. You'll release stagnation and stiffness from the day as you open to whatever is to come. Props Needed: A strap. Props Suggested: Two blocks and a blanket.
Make yourself a cup of tea and get your candlelight going to set the mood for a good night's rest. This yin practice will be an invitation for an easeful slumber. Be sure you have a little wall space - if you don’t, all postures can be done either seated or laying down. Conclude with a guided meditation, and your final savasana will be in your own bed. Props Needed: A blanket. Props Suggested: Two blankets.
Relieve your body from the pent-up strain of sitting in front of a computer, texting, or being otherwise "locked" to your devices. This series of neck, shoulder and mid back releasing poses will gently create space without adding more effort. Relax into simple neck stretches and hero pose with eagle arms, then end seated or in savasana if you have time. Props Suggested: A bolster, two blocks, and a blanket.
Life can be full of challenges. When you hit your max, give yourself a deserving pause and witness the dance.

Props Needed: Two blankets.
In Chinese medicine the water element nourishes all the other organs, providing an anchor that soothes the body and allows it to relax into a deep, rejuvenating sleep. This practice works on the water element and the meridians associated with it to help prepare the body and mind for a restful sleep. While helpful anytime, this class is perfect to do right before bed.
Recharge from the strain of being pulled in so many directions in everyday life. This practice provides a necessary return to wholeness, a state of inner calm and well-being.

Gently move through a props-supported sequence that includes dragonfly, half saddle and seated forward bend. Conclude class feeling a deep sense of completion and satisfaction. Props Needed: Two blankets. Props Suggested: A bolster or an additional blanket.
A specifically designed sequence of yin backbends and heart openers to facilitate the ability to connect to your inner intentions and the deepest desires of your heart.

Focus on releasing the important deeper muscles of your shoulders, so they can function more efficiently. Access this area with long held poses like supine gomukhasana, prone poses and spinal twists.

Props Needed: Two blankets and a block.
Explore a different way of opening your hips with a variety of prone, supine and seated poses that place gentle traction on your hips.
